Display connector trace on failed connectors

· One min read

With the release of Meroxa CLI version v1.4.0, we've updated the output of the connector describe command to display the error trace of failed connectors.

Describing connectors

When describing a connector that is in the "failed" state (i.e. the connector or the upstream data source has experienced an issue), running the describe command will now display the error trace that resulted in the "failed" state.
